when i see one. >> harry reid and the rest of the people in congress and the senate, are they going to be willing to be on the same plan they are asking us to be on? >> you will get your turn in a minute. >> the answer is, ok. bill: but some democratic leaders say many of those protesters you saw are plants, anti-obama fanatics who were conducting a kind of sabotage. bill: with us now, fox news analyst alan colmes and monica crowley. you say what? >> i say the american people are mad as hell, bill, and they are not going to take it anymore. this health care debacle is the last straw. they see their government unresponsive to their needs and to their desires. they see out of control profligate spending coming out of washington with a stimulus package that has failed, with cap and trade which is the largest tax increase in the history of the world. on top of that they see that. bill: you're starting to sound like dick morris. let's just keep it on health care. they say it's easy to stack any town meeting with anti-obama zealots, and it is, it is. you can do that through the internet.
some very critical words for these protesters tuesday. in fact, at one point, harry reid even held up a piece of astroturf today to point out that in his opinion these are not grassroots organizers and that they are in his words phony. he said, quote, we're not going to be sidetracked by people trying to sabotage a civil process. and senator dick dur win, the number-two democrat in the senate, said for the first time in his career there have been all these phone calls to his chicago office, in his words, begging for there to be town hall meetings. he said, quote, they're interested in youtube. they want to get the image across america that somehow congressmen and senators can't defend health care reform, and he went on to say i'm not going to allow myself to get sucker punched here. so, what senators are going to try to hammer home here over the next month when they're in their home states, wolf, is that health care reform is important for all americans, not just for those who are uninsured, but they also want to convince americans who have insurance that this is good for them, that i
of this program is quote in harry's court refering to senator majority leader harry reid will he bring the house majority in extending it for the vote and will the f word rise speaking of filibuster. but here's another question they are facing as well. where will the money come from and senator chuck schumer says they could get the money from the energy loan fund and senator feinstein says democratic leaders agreed take it out of tarp but many say the program could be considered beyond this $2 billion and she was once opposed to the bill but now touts it as a good plan because consumers are turning in their clunkers and getting cars that get on average 61 miles better on average so looking at it this way it remains to be seen how the republicans will vote on this. megyn: where does it stop? how much money should we put into cash for clunkers? in the meantime you mentioned the f word. what are republicans saying about this program? because we heard it across the board. they said we're going to filibuster and not let it get a vote then others saying over our dead bodies. where do the republicans s
